Dear all,

This year, TPAC is held in Fukuoka takes place in Asia, where I reside
 I never attended TPAC before but somehow since it's just a hop away from
me I felt it may be an opportunity to visit Japan again and see who is
still around and doing what @W3C, at least in principle we can plan for it.

Following a heads up a few months ago on these lists I have managed to
schedule a meeting for our CG AIKR  https://www.w3.org/community/aikr/

@TPAC Fukuoka,
THURSDAY 19 SEPT 2019 - FUKUOKA
13:30-15:30 Artificial Intelligence Knowledge Representation (AI KR)

At the time when the group was started,  KR had been somewhat in the
backburner of the AI domain for some time, at least based on my experience
as researcher and lecturer
With a few exceptions, I have to work hard to explain what KR is to the AI
academic communities in Asia, even in major institutions, which is rather
chilling for me.

I have been worried that few people understand AI, and that KR is not
taught at all, attention being mostly in teaching ML and NN . A concern of
mine/

Since we started the CG (and our cfp)
Cfp
https://www.mdpi.com/journal/systems/special_issues/Artificial_Intelligence_Knowledge_Representation

there has been renewed interest  on KR. At a minimum, our initiatives so
far have stimulated  renewed interest in this important branch of AI

The focus of the meeting  is going to be: to  say hi, discuss some of the
tasks in hand in the cg and capture the relevance of AI KR to other W3C
groups and see how AI KR can contribute to solving some of the problems and
issues in other WGs ( some of the visible challenges and discussions taking
place in other groups can be framed as AI KR challenges).
Best regards
PDM
